Released 31 May 2013

C Truct TestOn Thursday, May 30, 2013, Chesapeake Energy donated two Chevy Silverado trucks for use in our Socially Responsible Landscape Management Company. Julie H. Wilson, Chesapeake Energy VP of Urban Development, took the keys off an oversized Chesapeake Energy key chain and gave them to Major Ward Matthews to put onto an oversized Salvation Army key chain. After that, The Salvation Army landscaping crew unloaded equipment from the trailers and performed landscaping work at the Chesapeake Energy facility.

The Salvation Army landscaping company is a social enterprise that gives homeless people jobs and job training. The workers live in a Salvation Army homeless shelter until they save enough money to live on their own. The goal is to get people trained and provide them a work history so they can get another job making a higher income.
